Hensoldt to supply German Eurofighters with AESA radar

18th June 2020 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Hensoldt will design and develop a new AESA radar for the entire German fleet of Eurofighters following a decision by the Bundestag to release €1.5 billion ($1.7 billion) for the effort.

Thomas Müller, CEO of Hensoldt, said: ‘With this decision, Germany is taking on a pioneering role in the field of key technology for the Eurofighter for the first time… This will create high-tech jobs in Germany and give the Bundeswehr the equipment is needs to respond to new threats.’

Responsibility for previous upgrades to Eurofighter sensor systems fell to a consortium of UK-based defence companies.

Alongside approving funding for the AESA radar, the Budget Committee of the Bundestag also approved funding for the procurement of four MKS 180 multi-purpose combat ships for the German Navy for which Hensoldt will provide four TRS-4D naval radars based on AESA technology.
